Ride Windproof Deep Winter Lobster Gloves

ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW

KEEP THE COLD OFF YOUR HANDS AND RIDE THROUGH WINTER

The Ride Windproof gloves are a cyclist’s ultimate deep winter companion: gloves to keep you comfortable even in sub-zero temperatures but now at a more affordable price point. These gloves are similar to our premium level Nordic 2 Lobster Gloves, but with some subtle fabric changes to make the Ride model more affordable to all.

To help you get the most out of the Ride Windproof we have collected all the inside knowledge and experience from our test riders and R&D team on this page.

Rider's Guide


WEAR TIPS
  • The Ride Lobster gloves should have a snug fit to optimise their insulating properties
  • Preferences differ, but for most riders these gloves are perfect for sub-zero conditions between -5 and 5°C
  • The Ride Lobster gloves have a water-repellent treatment to cope with light drizzle, but for heavy rain look to our waterproof gloves instead
  • When removing these gloves pinch the fingertips of the gloves as you wriggle out your fingers. This will avoid the soft inner lining from separating from the windproof outer
  • For even more insulation in the coldest weather conditions, you could combine these gloves with a pair of liner gloves – but you will need to size up when purchasing your Ride Lobster winter gloves
CARE TIPS
  • The lining of these gloves has an anti-bacterial treatment that helps to reduce the build up of odour-causing bacteria; potentially reducing how often you need to wash them.
  • If your gloves are not too dirty, consider spot cleaning them with a sponge to avoid giving them and the environment a hard time by using your washing machine
  • The Durable Water Repellent treatment (eco-friendly DWR finish) will last for approximately 20 machine washes, but you can easily reapply it with wash-in or spray-on solutions

...and remember – you are wearing high quality cycling essentials from GripGrab that are built to last. Take care of them and they will take care of you for many years to come - enjoy your ride!

R&D NOTES

When we designed the Ride Lobster, we wanted to create a pair of gloves that would be the ultimate deep winter companion; gloves to keep you comfortable even in sub-zero temperatures. The result is similar to our premium level Nordic 2 Lobster Gloves, but with some subtle fabric changes to make this model more affordable to all. With the Ride Lobster we have created a new optimised finger split, where the thumb and forefinger are separated to give a 1+1+3 finger separation: allowing for easy braking and shifting on both road and MTB brake and gear levers. The Ride Lobster gloves have a three-layer design: with a windproof softshell outer fabric, a layer of Thinsulate® insulation, then a soft fleece inner lining fabric that is supremely comfortable against your skin. The exceptional breathability and moisture wicking performance of both fabric layers makes these gloves highly versatile, while the silicone gripper print has been designed to enhance your control on the handlebars and levers. Designed in Denmark for Scandinavian winters, we have tested the Ride Lobster gloves to the extreme and trust they will offer you the deep winter comfort you need.
